The Welsh bass-baritone Sir Bryn Terfel takes us to his home country Wales in his new project "Songs of the Sea". The wildly romantic coast is the starting point for a musical journey through Wales, England, Ireland, New Zealand and French Brittany. We experience Bryn in authentic locations, such as in a historic church, in a pub and on the cliffs of the Atlantic. With friends and companions like the Welsh instrumental ensemble Calan and other guests, he sings and plays hits like "What Shall We Do With The Drunken Sailor", "Wellerman", but also very authentic songs from the life of sailors. The musical performance is framed by Bryn's explanations of the history of these shanties and sea songs, the deprived Welsh life, the emigration story to the New World and his own 57-year biography.
